This is a full suit of tools to be able to enable git hooks to interface with Trello



  • add comments with associated git commit and alternatively close/archive issues from git commits

Installation How-To

Environment config

  • Install node
  • Install node_trello and colors packages globally
sudo npm install -g node-trello
sudo npm install -g colors
  • Clone this repo and copy the files to your project's .git/hooks folder
  • Make the hooks executable
chmod +x .git/hooks/*
  • run git init to reinitialize the repository to make sure it picks the new hooks

Script Config

  • STEP 1 - get an app key:

  • STEP 2 - get an app token using app key from step 1<KEY_FROM_STEP_1>&name=git-hook&expiration=never&response_type=token&scope=read,write

(replace KEY_FROM_STEP_1 with an actual key you got in STEP 1)

  • STEP 3 - get board ID:

append .json to any URL while inside the board and look for id: "BOARD_ID",

  • STEP 4 replace

key, token and board_id with the values obtained in steps 1-3

replace repo_link with your repo root URL in the post-to-trello script

Get card IDs to show in Trello

Use this bookmarklet:

javascript:!function(){var o=$(".card-short-id");o.each(function(){$(this).text($(this).text().replace("","").replace("","").replace("N.º ", ""))});o.hasClass("hide")?o.removeClass("hide").css({"font-weight":"normal","font-size":".9em","margin-right":"5px",padding:"2.3px 6px",background:$("body").css("background-color"),"border-radius":"10px",color:"#EE433E"}):o.addClass("hide")}();

Note that due to how Trello injects newly added cards, this won't work on newly added cards unless you refresh the page and toggle this bookmarklet again
